What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Arts is your ultimate springboard into a wide range of careers and further study options.

The Bachelor of Arts will equip you with a range of specialised and transferable skills that are highly sought after by employers: creative thinking, respect for multiple perspectives, and the ability to work effectively in a team environment.

Legal Studies

The Legal Studies major introduces some of the essential techniques and knowledge applied by lawyers and a grounding in some of the major fields of law. With guidance from law school academics, students will develop the ability to read and interpret legal texts (statutes and case law), gain an understanding of some of the central policy issues in law and advance legal arguments orally and in writing.

Career outcomes

Modern workplaces are invariably changing; responding to economic, political and social forces, which means employees need the basic intellectual capacities to adapt to change, understand intercultural differences, thoughtfully challenge assumptions, and think objectively.

Employers depend on people who are effective communicators and decision-makers, with demonstrable skills in critical thinking, problem solving, research and investigation. These abilities are fundamental for all Arts graduates, who have gone onto diverse careers including:

Advocacy and counselling
Arts and heritage
Business
Communications and public relations

Linguistics
Finance
Foreign relations and diplomacy
Healthcare and healthcare ethics

Historian
